Bug#699933: audit: external libev-dev Build-Dependency is not used

Package: audit
Version: 1:2.2.2-1ubuntu2
Severity: minor
Tags: patch
User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu raring ubuntu-patch

Dear Maintainer,

The upstream audit source embeds its own version of libev and the
project's build system uses the embedded version rather than using an
externally available libev. Therefore, a Build-Dependency on libev-dev
is unnecessary.

I have not had a chance to investigate why audit embeds its own libev or
if audit can build against the system's libev.

In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

  * Remove libev-dev Build-Dependency
    - debian/control: The upstream audit sources embed and build against their
      own version of libev. This is not desirable, but there's no reason to
      list libev-dev as a build dependency at this time.

Thanks for considering the patch.
